I love this school! Students are greeted by the principal, Mrs. Aldridge, every morning in the school lobby. She is assessible to parents too. My son struggled at the start of the year but his teacher, Mrs. Selter, was wonderful. He loved school and did well. I highly recommend Model. We had a great experience.

This school is a great place for your student to start their school experience. The teachers are great! My son had Mrs. Krumrei and she did a great job challenging him and he ended the year way above grade level. School is friendly and safe.

We have had a fantastic experience at Model. My son has some minor learning differences and they were great with taking a team approach to helping him have a great kindergarten year.

My son had Mrs. Porter for kindergarten and I couldn't have been happier. She was a wonderful teacher who helped her students be excited to learn. She welcomed parent participation in class and I always felt welcome coming in to help with an activity and get involved. I can't wait for my daughter to be old enough to go to kindergarten to have Mrs. Porter. She is an exceptional teacher.

Our son went to Model Elementary last year and we totally loved the experience!! So did he, which is really what is most important. Mrs Nelson truly spoiled us as first time parents. We are older than most other parents, and she was awesome!! I can't say enough good things about her. Mrs Rousch is also an incredible principle. I was disappointed when I heard she retired, but glad that we had the experience of working with her. I can't say much about the other teachers there, but can tell you Mrs Nelson is awesome!!!

I felt that Model elementary was not exactly what I expected for a first time mother with a child in Kindergarten. I felt that there was too much time spent freely without structure. I also was not overly thrilled with the level of feed back from the teacher. I rarely heard updates of academic or behavioral progress. I would like it to be better in those two areas. Jennifer D.

Model is a super school for Preschool and Kindergarten. The staff are professional and kind. My son's Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Porter is great. She handles situations in the classroom with the students immediately. She challeges the kids and my son comes home excited about what he learned. The principal Mrs. Rusch is freindly and is often roaming the halls and classroom. Child's is the school you want your child attending.

Lincoln schools are a wonderful learning facilty. I have 3 kids there this year 1 is a return from last year and they did a wonderful job with my son's speech problem. I would advise all parents looking for a school Lincoln is the one.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
